Regina Spektor’s sixth studio album, What We Saw From The Cheap Seats, is out. That means we’re hearing a lot more from the singer-songwriter whose music took form in the East Village of New York City. Several weeks back, Spektor gave a thoughtful interview on NPR’s Fresh Air, where, among other things, she recalled the discrimination her family faced in the Soviet Union and her childhood immigration to the United States. Now, we’re catching up with her in Southern California — at Apogee’s Berkeley St. Studios in L.A., to be precise — where Spektor played an intimate concert featuring songs from the new album. Catch one song, “The Party,” right above, and the complete 30-minute session here. If you have a decent internet connection, I’d skip to the HD version and enjoy. Kudos to KCRW for making this available.
